A California Burrito In San Diego

Carne asada, sour cream, cheese, and French fries, wrapped tightly in a giant, warm flour tortilla. Hungry yet? It may sound simple, but the California burrito has taken San Diego by storm and has been slowly making its way up the West Coast. Although there’s no confirmed origin, the California burrito is easily the most popular burrito, and, because of this, has rightfully made its way on virtually every taco shop’s menu. Every time a native San Diegan leaves the county, their taste buds cry, as they know that no other burrito anywhere else will fill the void the California burrito has left. Even though I’ve come across bastardized versions of the California burrito in Los Angeles, and even as far up as Chico, it’s just never quite the same. The ingredients are all there, but it lacks the particular flavors I’m looking for. Maybe it’s San Diego’s close proximity to Mexico. Maybe it’s because it was born in the heart of Southern California. Whatever the reason may be, the California burrito is steadily landing on menus all across the American Southwest.

This cultural food revolution isn’t just limited to burritos exclusively. There is a whole array of other menu items that are rarely found outside of San Diego County. This includes carne asada fries, the taquito burrito, the chile realleno burrito and many more. Carne asada fries are essentially fries smothered with meat drowning in sour cream, cheese and guacamole. They are the ultimate drunchies after a fun night on the town with your friends.  Usually, the carne asada fries are served in huge portions, making it the ideal meal to share with other people. The taquito burrito is probably exactly how you imagine it; a burrito with carne asada, guacamole, cheese, and, two to three taquitos stuffed inside. The chile relleno burrito is similar to the taquito burrito, but instead of carne asada, the burrito has rice and refried beans instead. This is the quintessential burrito for vegetarians looking for something more unique than the standard veggie or bean and cheese. These food combinations may sound odd at first, but I highly recommend giving each of them a taste. I guarantee you’ll find at least one that will change your perspective about what you consider standard taco shop food, forever. As I sit here writing this, hundreds of miles away from my favorite San Diego taco shops, I remain ever hopeful that, one day, my beloved California burrito will be perfected, no matter where I find myself.

  • 當蛋白線埋入皮膚後,皮下組織會將蛋白線視為異物,啟動異物反應,因此刺激膠原蛋白生長,且可促進新陳代謝,更新老化肌膚,所以客戶在術後也會發覺膚質變得較透亮白皙。膠原蛋白提拉線像一個“磁力線”一樣,將埋入處附近的肌肉和脂肪固定在原處,不會往下墜,其後會吸引皮下組織往蛋白線集中部位移動,就會逐漸產生提拉的緊實效果。也被用於填充美容的微整形,蛋白線材就好比蓋房子的鋼骨支架,先埋入皮膚當作基底結構,然後再注入好比水泥的玻尿酸或自體脂肪,因為有吸附力不易擴散,就可穩定固定住填充物,讓立體支撐力效果更好。
